You could get squashed by an elephant that's out of control, or you could come and see the latest 'death-defying' show from Nutty Noah. Featuring magic, music and (not so) dangerous stunts, this show will make you feel alive! A lighthearted poke in the eye for St Peter as Nutty Noah takes a sideways glance at death, for kids!

The workplace is given a unique circus twist as 'Office Politics' turns the mundane into a delight. Enjoy an upsidedown perspective as the co-workers do everything to keep the daily grind interesting. From dancing towards deadlines and customer care on the ceiling to aerial acrobatics in the meeting room, this really is blue skies thinking.

David and Sam know every story ever told. Unfortunately, they are a little vague when it comes to the facts. For an hour, they will stop time and share with you some incredible characters lost in history. We can't promise facts. We can't even promise to make it to the end of the show. But we can promise an anarchic, comedic kaleidoscope of songs, sketches and silliness to put a smile on everyone's face.

Following a mysterious storm, a turtle finds herself trapped on a strange island made of plastic. Can she escape? Can she clean up the island? And who is the strange monster that lives there? Dive in and join a colourful cast of sea creatures as physical theatre, puppetry and clowning combine in this magical under-sea adventure. www.todosteatro.com

Fern the Folklorogist lives in the woods and has secrets and stories to tell. Magical immersive storytelling show about trees, friendship and the importance of nature in our lives. Original songs and puppets. From Forest School theatre company Brambledash in association with the Sussex Wildlife Trust. "Fran Moulds is immensely engaging...leaves you totally delighted" (The Guardian).

There's a nose on the loose in the city, and it's not the only one. The Purveyors of Found Noses are on their scent, ready to reunite lost owners with their wayward nostrils. Some noses are easy; others lie dusty on the rack for years. In the end, all the owners have to do is try on the noses and the rest will reveal itself. Funny, poetic and riotous. GB Met actors with an original show inspired by Gogol's 'The Nose.'
